On Killing A Girl - Poem by survi sharma

Do you believe
my gender
yeah, i am a girl
from the country
where child ratio is so low
we are killed
in the womb
just to get a son
so mean
do you believe it
we are so pathatic
i want justice
what government is doing
do you see them all
what is happening in delhi
who wonders?
i am from the land
where gandhi ji was born
i need non violence
so i am appealing
please stop this killing
you know this world lies on
the shoulder of girls.

    And in their hearts, they too shame us all for this injustice... For girls are the most valid means of continuing life and sustaining love. - survi, you are a great spokeswoman for Lady India! Brovo! ; -) Kelly. (Report) Reply

    This is a sad fact of what happens in your country. You have to be part of the message to change peoples attitude by writing about it highlighting the plight of women. Keep writing. (Report) Reply

    I feel bad for this, because how low animals are, they never choose gender of their offspring...and never kill them for any purpose...but human with mind, do come? so the level of these human is less classy than any loving animals..God send lil new baby as a responsibility to take, not as something to fit our desires and life style as they think..Oh God, help us_Soul (Report) Reply

    girls are killed in the womb
    so sad
    what a tragic end of that innocent infant
    it must be against the law
